Camdenton graduate Tyler Hills has been named to the 2013 Westminster Blue Jays baseball team in Fulton.
Hills, a sophomore at Westminster, is going to be playing as an outfielder this year.
Before coming to Westminster, Hills attended Camdenton High School.
The Westminster Blue Jays are being led this season by head coach Dennis Hughes and assisted by Dane Hughes and Doug Otto. The Blue Jays finished fifth in the St. Louis Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (SLIAC) and completed the season with a 15-23 record. The Blue Jays have 15 returning student-athletes.
The Blue Jays begin their season Feb. 24, when they host Millikin University in their season opener.
Westminster College values the student-athlete experience and the life-long lessons they learn each day – some learned inside the classroom, while other skills and lessons are learned on the courts where these student-athletes compete.
As President Barney Forsythe says, "Leadership, teamwork, sportsmanship, self-discipline, a commitment to excellence and a will to win, all lead to a life of success after graduation."
